Getting a Coach
For the first few months of her transformation, Teresa didn’t know much about training or nutrition. She mostly trained on her own, looking at ‘how-to videos‘ on the internet, and using her own mistakes in the gym as her guide for progress.
However, she doesn’t advise this type approach to everyone. Teresa says, those who are starting out should get themselves someone who can teach them how to train correctly.
In Teresa’s opinion, this not only makes the entire process much faster, but it also prevents potential injuries and muscle imbalances.
Burning Fat With Cardio
One of Teresa’s favorite forms of cardio for burning fat is HIIT, AKA; high-intensity interval training. This is something many athletes swear by as the ultimate way to burn fat quickly, and Teresa agrees with this.
However, just to make things less repetative, Teresa will also add in a steady-paced form of cardio, such as long walks in nature or steady-paced running on a treadmill.
Eating Like an Athlete
Although Teresa isn’t classed as a professional athlete, she still eats like one. Some of her staple foods include chicken, brown rice, a lot of cruciferous vegetables, fermented foods such as pickles and yogurts, nuts, and coconut oil.
She also often prepares some of these foods in advance, so she can save herself time when she’s on the move.

It helps me to see how far I’ve come and to celebrate the accomplishments that I have made. Just know that if I can do it, anyone can!!”
